We did it! We bit the bullet of stressful planning and made an appointment for a family picture. We have dreaded doing this for. . . well, since it was just Tom, me and Julian! That was the last time we had our pictures taken.
You see whenever you make an appointment to do this all hell breaks loose. The kids get sick or some weird infection that has to do with their face. Someone throws up, wets their pants or has a meltdown. The van doesn’t start when you get ready to leave the house – or any number of mishaps. But after hearing from our loving family that they were in need of an updated picture – we did it.
Yes, the kids got sick, their lips were chapped, Evely’s eye kept watering – but it wasn’t too bad. I prayed all week that the kids would behave and smile. That we would all get there in one piece with no blood shed and, praise the Lord, we ended up with a few good pictures. I was pleased!
